.JPEG to .DST converter.
I went into a shop at the mall where they make costom hats and I wanted to have a picture on my hat of something I drew. They said the file type has to be a stich file (DST).
So I went home and of course none of the programs I have can save a file to .DST

I want this picture http://i33.tinypic.com/xnt361.jpg
But in DST format.

Does anyone know how to do that?
(please do not post answers saying go search google I did this already NO help from google,
but by all means dont let that stop you from trying it out. You probably will have better luck then me........)

This site has a 30 day demo (or 100 runs of program) and might work for your one use of a monogram. The registered program seems expensive $144

This is an Embroidery file ... And it takes a Digitizer to make an Embroidery file from a picture.
The good digitizers are way too expensive for my budget.

Basically .. You can only convert an Embroidery file type to another embroidery file type ..
If you have the software ... I use Buzz Explorer and Buzz Size.

I know that a Janome comes with a basic digitizer ...
My wife has a Janome that would buy me about 3 hotdog computers.

And using Photoshop and Janome .. I've made a few Embroidery patterns...
But they don't look as good as the pros with the expensive software can do.

Yes .. and Maybe .. I'll take a look at it later .. kinda busy right now.
But my software is limited

You have two other options ...
Print to cloth and sew the cloth on ...
or print to Transfer Paper .. then Iron the Image on.

Doesn’t look like I can convert this.

What’s needed is a good digitizer like … http://www.drawstitch.com/Overview.htm ... At about $1800
Or maybe ... http://www.buzztools.com/buzz-2-Stitches.asp ... At $300

If you decide to print this to Iron on Transfer paper .. You’ll need a reverse Image like attached.

it needs to b a dst file cuz the hat store takes the file and sews it to a hat.

but it already costs me 40$ and i have NO money to spend 1800 on a program im gonna use 1 time.

Iím surprised that the Hat Store didnít tell you more .. Or offer to Digitize it for you.
But you probably would have found the digitizing service was also Price Prohibitive.

Perhaps they didnít want to mess with this because the Embroidery people are worse than the RIAA.
We have a family relative that was threatened with a law suit .. Because she bought a pattern off of Ebay.

Iíve also heard that if you go to Disney Land wearing an unauthorized Disney Embroidery pattern ..
You enjoyment will be cut short by the Disney Police.

Embroidery patterns do not have much detail as a picture ....
Are you sure you donít want to put a picture on your hat ??

You could see what they say .. But you might not like the Cost.

There's a chance I may be able to borrow This software in a week or two .. to see if I like it

OMG that would b perffect.
from wut i understand from the video is that it can take a jpeg and make it a type of sewing file.
then from there i could ezily convert it to a .dst.

man if i could ask u the HUGE favour (if u get to borrow it) could you do that for me?
and send me the (whatever type of sew file u make it) ?

i would be the 2nd happiest person in the world.

Sew is another Embroidery file type ...
My Wife's Janome uses a jef file type ... Her old Kenmore used a sew file type.

Once I can get it in an Embroidery file type .. I can convert it to about anything.
But like I said .. Embroidery patterns do not have much detail .. In spite of the doctors help
